Verdict

Andalucia Lady had a run on the Flat to restore some confidence after falling at Sligo and she's not on a bad mark here. Ballyspellan Lad had 5l to spare over FORMAL BID here last month but Michelle Gannon's charge isn't the most reliable type and ran poorly at Tramore a week later. Formal Bid was having his first start since January on that occasion and went one better at Bellewstown so can reverse the form and take this despite a moderate run on a return visit here. Luimneach Abu looked as though he was progressing when scoring at Wexford but he ran so poorly when favourite at Killarney that there's likely to have been something amiss.
